Verdict

Stars Over The Sea has some fancy entries in the autumn and connections will be disappointed if he can't go close in this having got off the mark in an Ayr maiden last month. But BRAIDLEY also appears to be progressing nicely and recent rain won't bother this son of Dylan Thomas, who won on soft ground at Catterick. He gets the nod ahead of the top weight and Redcar winner New Street and stablemate Imshivalla, who has shown promise and could appreciate stepping up to a mile. Clever Miss was outclassed in a Group 3 at Newmarket earlier this month but should find this easier.
